Photographer's Note

One of Yosemite's prettiest lakes is Tenaya Lake, located on Tioga Pass Road east of Olmstead Point. In this view even though it is June there is still a sheet of ice covering most of Tenaya. The Lake is at 8,150 feet above sea level. This is a great place to relax and soak up the summer sun with sandy beaches on the west side.

In the background the large granite dome on the left is Pieweack, the name the Modoc Indians gave the Lake, which means "Lake of the Shining Rocks".
